Their first tour of the UK was in about 1979 or 1980 I think. They only played amateur opposition. As far as I know there has been a programme for each match PNG have played in the UK. I assume you are looking for PNG programmes for games played in the UK?

That's international matches sorted. I know in 1979 they played a Humberside amateur rep side and in 1987 they played a Hull FC/Hull KR combined X111.

Thanks for the info I'll sort them tonight and post the list tomorrow. I'm trying to complete the set for games in the U.K and then any others available. I've got one for a game against France and some for the World Cup and Four Nations games in Australia.

Just checked through the Rothmans yearbooks, and you've got all the tour matches covered for the 79, 87 and 91 tours. 

 

Other than World Cups their only other appearance here was a 2007 game against Wales in Bridgend prior to a tour of France. 

 

Didn't realise they played in the Nines in 1987 - even with a large squad that must have been a pretty demanding itinerary.

The Fev v PNG game in 1987 had a rather nice official pennant produced too.

Dont suppose you have a spare one that you would like to sell?

As I said above they played a Humberside amateur selection in 1979. Have you worked out which programmes you are short of?

They played the Barla GB team at The Boulevard in 79, but there's no record of a game against a Humberside team.

I have the programme for the Game against a Humberside thirteen. I'll post the teams later.

Sorry, I meant a game against a Humberside team in 1979 - I assume you're referring to the game in 1991? Deluded Pom referred to a game against a Humberside team in 1979.

Now you mention it that's probably the game I'm thinking of. Apologies.
